I have an AIP. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel lawyer as I would much rather appoint a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Lyndhurst?
Do check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel lawyers where you want the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the mortgage company to explore if they allow a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Lyndhurst.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.
